Perhaps I need to get used to the idea
That I don’t always need people to be pleased with me,
For me to be contented with myself.
I don’t always need to hear affirmation and praise,
For me to accept that I have done to the best of my ability.
I also need to understand that doing the right thing,
May not be the most popular thing,
And we will not always be able to please everyone.
A lesson as ageless as time, yet a trap I find myself constantly falling into, day after day.
And the lessons of life continue.
